Our Company uses Tenable to scan desktopservers for security flaws. One security issue that it finds on all of the VMware View desktops is an unTrusted Certificates
Details from Tenable –
The following certificate was found at the top of the certificate
chain sent by the remote host, but is self-signed and was not
found in the list of known certificate authorities :
|-Subject : CN=nameofdesktop.domain.com – actual desktop namedomain removed… you know – security : )
. The certificate is located at [Console RootCertificates (Local Computer)VMwareViewCertificatesnameofdesktop.domain.com] and [Console RootCertificates (Local Computer)Remote DesktopCertificatesnameofdesktop.domain.com]
Does anyone know what the certificate is used for ( I assume remote connections)? Is it generated during a recompose or desktop creation? Most importantly – How do i get certs to be trusted?
